The Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks have been in the liquid lipstick game since the very beginning. Almost every brand has a liquid lipstick formula now, but a few years ago Still was one of the only liquid lipsticks I can remember seeing on the shelves. It took me a long time to get on the liquid lipstick bandwagon, though, so I didn’t try the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks until this year.
The Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks helped me fall in love with matte, transfer-proof liquid lipsticks. Other ultra-matte formulas crumbled on my lips, or made my mouth feel dry. The Stila lipsticks are very matte, and very long-lasting. Of course, they do feel a little dry (most transfer-proof liquid lipsticks too). However, they’re lightweight, and they never crumble on my lips. These lipsticks are very pigmented, so you only need one swipe. The formula itself feels lightweight and liquid but dries down in seconds. With some liquid lipstick formulas, touch-ups make the lipstick crumble, but these Stila lipsticks can be re-applied throughout the day with no problems. Part of what appeals to me about the Stila liquid lipsticks is that the formula contains vitamin E and avocado oil, which I think helps to counteract the drying effects of such a matte finish.
I have the colors Caramello (which is a beautiful nude, that I think would work on multiple skin tones because it has neutral undertones) and Patina (Stila’s iconic mauve shade). They’re both beautiful and unique colors, unlike any others in my collection. I usually wear Patina alone, but I occasionally wear a gloss with Caramello. The shade range includes swoon-worthy nudes and fiery reds. If I had an unlimited budget, I would buy them all for sure!
The Stila liquid lipsticks aren’t cheap, but there’s a reason that the formula is so iconic. It’s easy to wear, the colors are beautiful, and the packaging is luxurious. I think I bought my Stila lipsticks at Sephora, but you can also purchase them at Ulta. Stila also recently became cruelty free, which makes the brand more appealing to a wide variety of consumers.
